Diseases & Conditions

  • Flat or Inverted Nipples
    Having flat or inverted nipples causes challenges when breastfeeding as it makes it difficult for the baby to latch on to the nipple.

    Premature birth and jaundice are just a few of the many reasons a baby may not be able to suck or latch-on effectively and our specialists are here to help.

  • Over-Active Let-Down
    If your baby gags or pushes away from the breast while feeding, you may be experiencing over-active let-down, when your body produces milk too quickly.

  • Ovulation Disorders
    When ovulation fails to occur or occurs on an infrequent or irregular basis, it is known as an ovulatory disorder.

  • Plugged Milk Ducts
    When a woman goes too long without emptying her breasts of milk, or if insufficient milk is being removed during feedings, milk ducts could be plugged and a physician should be consulted.
